I am a couch surfer ( read my profile here- (website hidden) If you want a direct link, I will gladly send it you...you can see my experience hosting and staying as a guest) who occasionally enjoys a more private, upscale lodging experience. This is why I decided to create an airbnb profile. I do not like staying in hotels when I travel. I prefer staying with locals, preferably in their home.I feel more connected to humanity in this way. Staying in someones home, you get to discover their neighborhood and all the awesome local places they love. I may even score a new friend! Ari, my boyfriend, who travels with me often is the guy in the photo!
I am free spirited, yet grounded. My favorite things include travel, yoga, the ellptical machine, reading about food, shopping for food, cooking food, eating food, biking, wwoz, wine, mezcal,scotch ales, netflix, rainy days, sunny days, coffee, public transit, street art, live music, chicago house music, soul music, ginger tea, healthy living, potlucks, dinner parties, dining out, yard sales,my boyfriend, my nieces, flowers and herbs, alternative medicine, ink, cats, decorating my home, laughing, dancing, loving, collecting 45's.
